It's my son's birthday today. Nine years ago he was born at a local hospital. A lot has changed since then: he gained a sister and perhaps even two...His dad switched carier from bookkeeping to childcare;
this country's population has changed its mind dramatically on the subject of camera-suveillance
and the line "Ausweis bitte!" People die by the thousands without those in power doing anything to ease their suffering and people are hardly in the mood to even help their own relatives.
But we won't give in! We will continue to fight for a better world in our own small way. Say goodmorning to the busdriver, help your elderly neighbour with her groceries, write letters to government-officials
and spread the world that it's not only easier but also more helpful to do good than bad. And keep on smiling although this world keeps being battered by hurricanes, earthquakes and unwilling politicians.
Help make this world a better place and enjoy life to the fullest!
(And probably die trying, but that's not the point)
